from an angry black woman

tell me where to put the hatred
that I feel for 45
the daily racism he evinces
makes it hard for blacks to survive

tell me why it’s wrong
this bitterness I feel
for folks tasered & clubbed at protests
where people peacefully kneel

tell me what to do
with my anger at your silence
it’s my nature to be caring
as a rule, I loathe violence

what are my people supposed to do,
when we continue to wrongfully die?
what recourse do we have,
when you ignore our righteous cry?
